Someone once told me that the number of bubbles in your tortilla while it’s cooking is an indication as to how many boyfriends you have.

The last time Nick and I went on a date was literally 2 years ago. It was the week before Garrick was born. πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚ Hoping we can get out a little more often. This was also the first time in a very very long time that I ate an entire meal without interruption or a child in my lap. It was glorious. #Parenting #FirstDate #ThatDessertThough

Sometimes you need to let your tot lead the hike at a 1mph pace to remind you to slow down. We climbed every rock and stump on the way to Moraine Park and back. There was joy, tears, laughter and snacks, lots of snacks. #MomLife #GoOutside

So like... how did I miss a call from myself?! πŸ˜³πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ‘»πŸ˜‚ Anyone that’s more familiar with technology have any insight?
The boys had tons of fun in the snow this morning! So glad Garrick has decided he likes it, last year he wanted nothing to do with it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜
I don’t always eat the heel of the bread... but can guarantee I will if it’s off a freshly baked loaf of peasant bread. πŸ˜‹πŸ½

It's amazing how much joy a bucket of beans can bring to a child.

Did you know you can easily make your own cold/cough remedy? So Easy. #KeepItSimple #KeepItNatural
Long post ahead: 😬 Let's chat about something that nobody ever talks about. What does breastfeeding/parenting do to your body? So. Many. Things. πŸ“πŸ“šπŸ˜‚But today I'd like to chat about one of the most unexpected things it did to mine.
So many people talk about how breastfeeding helps you "lose the baby weight" and for so many people that's absolutely true. That was/is not reality for me. Reality is that I only gained 16lbs my entire pregnancy and 85% of that was in the last trimester. Seems like a dream but I had horrible food aversion and was barely able to eat anything. So 16lbs. The baby & its BFFs, the placenta & amniotic fluid, typically weigh around 15-20lbs. So by those calculations I actually either lost or didn't gain anything in regards to my own body during my pregnancy. I was actually a couple of pounds LIGHTER than before getting pregnant after I birthed Garrick. 😳(note: this is not a recommended way to shed pounds ladiesπŸ˜‚)The only difference was that my belly was now this weird squishy gooey pillow and my boobs were swollen.
So fast forward to my first week postpartum. I had all the supply issues and it took me an entire week of pumping every 3 hours 24/hrs a day to get my milk in... like tiny drops of colostrum. And even then I was struggling to keep up with what Garrick was eating because at that point he still couldn't latch so we were bottle feeding him donor milk. Breastfeeding/milk production burns around 600 calories a day. That's an entire extra meal that a nursing mother has to consume to make sure her body is given the nutrition it needs to produce milk. And it also requires lots of hydration, like 100+ ounces a day, especially when you're struggling with supply. So high protein and high carb snacks became a necessity for me to keep up with production & I was having to eat basically every time I pumped and/or fed (8-12x day). Avocados, oatmeal, nuts, lactation cookies... all delicious and excellent sources of nutrition for making milk. We struggled with supply and latch issues for months. ...cont'd in comments...
